In Worship This Sunday

The Lessons
Matthew 28:16-20    Jesus commissions us to go out into the world - and uses these words:  Father Son and Holy Spirit
2 Corinthians 13:5-13   The suggested text for Trinity Sunday is the end of this letter to the church in Corinth so the reading has been expanded to the encouragement of putting the church to "the test" - meaning to be restored in faith! 

Sermon: One Moment of Clarity  
 We will have to do some imagining when it comes to Trinity this week! 

Serving in Worship:  Monica Eppinger, Deacon at the door; Paul Ames, Pat Turner, ushers; Dave Larson, lay reader, Amy Foster, Monica - Communion

Church World Service


The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. - Psalm 111:10a

            My family loved the ocean. Mom taught salt heals cuts and the frigid temperatures of the Atlantic would make you resistant to colds in winter. Dad taught us about tides, marine life, currents—always conveying a sense that the sea was much more ingeniously arranged than land. And nothing was tastier and better for you than seafood.

            The ocean seems a vast and bountiful source of all things good and fascinating.  When I was four or five years old, a wave came that sucked me underwater, flung me around, and spit me out headfirst onto the beach. Now I knew to keep an eye on those waves. I had the beginning of wisdom that was, if not fear, then brand-new respect for the fact that when you’re in the ocean—even just standing up to your knees in it—you are not in charge.

            If it’s really God, and not actually the Atlantic Ocean, that is the vast and bountiful source of all things good and fascinating, then the beginning of wisdom must be to respect—if we can’t bring ourselves to fear—God’s power. And to know that when you step into God’s world, you’re not in charge.   God, help me remember not to fight your currents and to swim with them. Amen.                                                                                     -Tina Villa


Global Ministries Prayer for  Indonesia:  Lord God, teach us to be able to appreciate and be grateful for all the differences between us: ethnicity, race, culture, religion, generation, gender, and social status. Make us tools that are able not only to think and hope about the realization of justice but also to practice justice from within our families, our households, our communities, and to the people. May all of us, the people of Indonesia, be able to live in sisterhood and brotherhood and respect one another in love and peace.  We pray for the issues of crimes against humanity that are currently taking place in Indonesia, such as the problem of human trafficking which is increasingly becoming a humanitarian emergency. Crimes are caused by weak education, poverty, and the weakness of law enforcement.  May God always hear the prayers of the victims and their families and all those who are working and trying to overcome this problem. Lord, hear our prayer. In Jesus Christ who is our Unifier, now and forever. Amen.
